Pian dei Ciliegi Anti-Covid Protocol

Due to the recent regulations for the containment of Covid19, we must reduce the number of participants in our retreats to 21/22, so that everyone can have a single room and share a bathroom with one other person. Furthermore, this is the only way to ensure regular distancing between people in the meditation hall and in the dining room.

We will ask you to respect the other safety measures required by the Italian legislation: to wash your hands thoroughly and frequently, to use the hand cleansing gel (which will be made available), to wear a face mask in the common areas inside the building and outside if the distance of one meter between you and another person is not guaranteed, and to use disposable gloves for cleaning the bathroom (preferably your personal ones)

Meditators could be invited to meditate in their rooms, at the discretion of the teacher and the person responsible for security.

Meals will be served individually by the kitchen staff and not buffet style as before. There will be two seats at the table, separated by a divider.

We will take care to regularly sanitize the common areas and make sure that there is sufficient air exchange.

We ask you to make sure that you have no flu symptoms in the days prior to your arrival and that you have not been in contact with people with Covid19. At check-in you will be asked to sign a waiver in this regard.

If, when you return home, symptoms attributable to a Covid19 infection occur, we ask you to let us know as soon as possible so that we can take the necessary measures.

Here is a list of things to bring for your stay at the center:

• Comfortable clothes
